Management was extremely sensitive to my family's personal time and schedule. Service outstanding, flexibility for nutritional needs and impeccable cleanliness. Activities in the ranch were appropriate to level of visitors. The ranch is in a remote, yet easy access area so you will get the peace emanating from that region of the country.

We had a warm welcome on arrival at the Estancia and the care and helpfulness just got better throughout the stay, so that we felt really at home. The accommodation is excellent with an open fire adding the special touch in the evenings. The food was very good and nothing was ever any trouble whilst we were there. As inexperienced... More

i cant recommend this highly enough. Originally this for me was all about the riding and the horses, however it turned out to be a relaxing haven with amazing food and a lovely family. It had been raining hard when we arrived but rather than cancel our trip they arranged a local taxi to pick us up from the bus... More

We stayed at this estancia for three nights and four days and enjoyed every minute. From the very moment we arrived, we received first class service. The food was cooked to perfection, including the asado and we couldn't wait for our next meal. Cleanliness 10 out of 10. The place is immaculately presented, with well designed interior, comfortable lounges and... More

We stayed at Santa Maria in November 2013, having done lots of research on different estancias. We wanted something which wasn't full of day tourists, but isolated, calming and completely peaceful and quiet. Santa Maria delivered spot on brief and excelled every way possible. The staff were extremely friendly, and my terrible Spanish wasn't a problem. They were attentive to... More

We stayed here for two nights. We were picked up from the bus station in a very muddy pickup. The reason for which soon becoming apparant, as we left the main road, and drove along some very muddy tracks after recent rainfall.

We had 48 hours here and enjoyed every moment from the BBQ on arrival to a lovely sunrise and walk on our last morning, accompanied by a very friendly collie dog. We felt welcomed like it was our home. The birds around the homestead are fantastic, we ate lots of wonderful home cooked meals, enjoyed cosy fires for morning coffee... More

Sadly my family and I only stayed at Estancia Santa Maria for some 24 hours. It is a beautiful and very well run estancia. The house is really beautifully decorated and appointed. So wonderfully authentic, familiar and warm. The house staff are caring, courteous and helpful. The food, from breakfast to dinner was great. The evening asado at the quincho... More

A very warm welcome by the ladies who run the guest area. A lovely house with 3 bedrooms was available to us (party of 5). The living room was gorgeous.

We had a great time at this place. We enjoyed the colonial style of the house, the open fire place in the living room and the good food. Best of all were the horses and the gauchos who we could join and experience their everyday work. Good advice for everyone who likes a little luxury and still wants to get... More
